You don't destroy legacy characters. If you want to write stories like these, you use temporary characters who can be easily written off the show.

The worst story going for me is Billy and Summer. It's too disgusting for words. You don't destroy legacy characters like that. There will always be hatred of Summer for many reasons, whether she is good or bad. So what, Victor is the most hated character on the show and he has been on Y&R for decades and won't leave unless he choses to.


There was an explanation given. Jack realized that his mother is too sick to be able to recall who his father is so he may never know and he's accepted that. As for legacy characters are they just supposed be staid and never change at all? There has to be some kind of character development.

No legacy characters have been through the wringer. We expect that. But giving characters drama is one thing, turning them into total trash is another.

I agree that was gross. So many things on the show are gross now.

I dropped Y&R about three weeks ago for many of the same reasons as the original poster. I still stop by this board occasionally to hear if things have improved, but alas that doesn’t seem to have happened...

Totally agree. The legacy characters' histories have been totally rewritten. The new characters are a bore, useless or bring little to the table. Most of the storylines are preposterous. New writers who respect what Bill Bell built.

Its such a shame. We need drama and problems for all the characters. But there has to be a line drawn that you don't cross or you destroy legacy characters. Writers should never write characters that no one likes!

The characters that are being shown at lot are written as trashy and disgusting. We aren't even told why characters are acting the way they are. Many other characters aren't shown at all. We need writers who care about Y&R and want to save the show. We need them now before there is no show left to save.
I am glad someone spoke up about how this show has been written lately. I have been fed up with the storylines lately and have not watched the show in almost 2 weeks. Things don't seem to make sense anymore in this soap. Lily being blamed for killing Hilary and Devon hates her, Summer trying to sleep with her mother's man, and Nick looking like a player by sleeping with Phyllis. Everything is gone wild up here, and I believe that y&r are losing more viewers.

Summer going after Billy like a dog in heat is one of the worse things I have seen in my 40 years of watching Y&R. It's disgusting. As much as I have loved this show for most of my life, If they do the deed, I can't stomach this kind of porn any longer. Mr. Bell must be spinining in his grave.

Yes it is sickening how she is going after her mother's man/her ex uncle. She rather hook her mother back up with Jack so she can have Billy to herself. How gross and disgusting that is?
